WTF of course cloned food is safe to eat. That's a retarded objection. Labelling food as cloned or not or whatever is irrelevent. It's not the issue at all, it's a distraction. The problem with cloning is the reduction of biodiversity. It's already a problem among many of our domestic species just due to breeding, and if ranchers are allowed to just clone their best individuals to make whole herds that are genetically identical, it sets us up for a massive food supply catastrophe.

Now, if we had a genetic databank of all the current bovine diversity (though it's a shame we're too late, we've already fucked up cows pretty bad) then we could rest somewhat more easily, since if there is a disaster we would still have those genes in the bank.
